Bin Laden sends coded message to sleeper agents

Faisal Shahzad may not go down as the stupidest terrorist in history (that honor probably still belongs to shoe bomber Richard Reid), but he sure seems to have made quite a few rookie mistakes.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).
